Wonderful crew

Review for Emerald Liberte to Europe - River Cruise

We chose this cruise as we were keen to try Provence and we were not disappointed. After two years of cancelled holidays and uncertain times, this cruise was a perfect return to river cruising. From the Captain, who was so approachable and turned his hand to anything, to the delightful cabin steward who came twice a day, every member of staff was welcoming, friendly and efficient. They all ...

I chose this cruise because it was to be our first cruising experience and I wanted to get it absolutely right.I completely landed on my feet as you could choose no better company to look after you so well.The planning is second to none,and they genuinely are concerned about your welfare.The little touches that they add to the cruise are terrific and go a long way to the enjoyment of the port ...

It wasn't the cruise that I'd paid for

Having travelled with Emerald before (2014) and Because I love the Moselle & Rhine rivers, it was an obvious choice. However certain aspects were a severe disappointment. Day 6 Trier, awoke moored in a commercial dock next to a scrapyard, 15 miles from Trier, hardly much chance of a stroll ashore after the official tour. Day 7 Bernkastle, except it was Traben Trabach, 30 minutes by coach from ...

This was our fourth cruise with Emerald and it was great to be back on one of their ships after 2 cancellations because of the pandemic. Liberte is slightly shorter than other ‘Star’ ships but the only place this is noticeable is on the small deck in the bow where there were less chairs than on other ships, and as the upper deck is closed during most cruising because of low bridges this limited ...

We visited a monasttery in Melk which was truly beautiful , ...

I choose this cruise because my travel agent said they were similar to Viking, but more modern decor. The room was fine and we loved the drop down window. The cruise director on the ship was very personable and nice. That is it for the positives. Dealing with Emerald was a nightmare. They changed the ship and we were never informed. It made for a nightmarish boarding day. The food was ...

Booked fall 2021 as only cabins our travel agent in USA could find. Overall all, more than pleased. Food was excellent and staff was friendly and professional. Everything well thought out and well organized. Panorama Balcony Cabins on "A" deck don't really have balconies and getting in and out of bathroom tight. But we spent little time in our room so not an issue. Chef's Recommendation ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We wanted to explore the wine region of Portugal and thought there was no better way than by river. This was our first river cruise and we were definitely not disappointed. Everything was of an exceptionally high standard. The boat was always clean and tidy and staff worked extremely hard to achieve this. Every member of staff was very attentive at all times, always a smile on their face ...

Just returned from the holiday. Actual port of embarkation was Giurgiu, near Bucharest, Romania but this was not an option on the Cruise Critic drop down menu, Budapest was where we disembarked. This was our fifth river cruise and the first with Emerald. This cruise was excellent. Emerald looked after us extremely well and the service, be it from the cabin stewards, reception, bar service, ...

Wanted to see the lower Danube

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

After cruising the upper part of the Danube we wanted to see from Budapest downwards. The places were very interesting however some of the tour guides need to interpret the history of the countries better and what is actually interesting as opposed to boring and more like a history lesson at school. On one occasion it took the coach about and hour and a half to get to the place we were going to ...
